Checking if a Printer is installed on Ubuntu.

Go to the Printers window (System > Administration > Printing), if you find the printer you are looking for, it's installed.
If you can't find your printer, i answered a question on how to install a printer on Ubuntu earlier, check it out.

Please rate my solution,
Thank you.

I want to know if the Canon imageCLASS MF3240 is a postscript printer? Other question is there any way for the driver to work under ubuntu 12.04.5?


do you have instruction manual ?
you may be able to print from the printer a settings summary which may show the language the printer is expecting ./
there may be a way for a windows driver to work in ubuntu it is done by either finding a ubuntu driver for the printer (which seems really hard to find) or mucking around using ndiswrapper utility to try and manipulate a driver to work in ubuntu.

Can't not print out in ubuntu 10.10


You will need to visit your printer manufactures website and download and install the Ubuntu 10.10 drivers for your printer. Once these drivers are installed then your operating system will know how to use your printer, meaning that you will be able to print once the correct drivers are installed.

Take care!

Installing printer in Linux


Manually Installing a New Locally Connected Printer and Printer Driver When Ubuntu detects a printer it will automatically select a driver if the printer is recognized and a driver is available. To manually add a printer, begin by clicking on the New button in the Printer configuration toolbar. A Please Wait. Searching for Printers dialog will appear as the system is scanned for a locally attached printer. Once the search is complete, the New Printer Wizard dialog will appear including an entry for each detected printer. In the following figure, Ubuntu has detected an HP DeskJet printer connected to a USB port:

Select the desired locally connected printer from the list in the left hand panel and click the Forward button to select the appropriate printer driver. On the resulting screen select the printer manufacturer and choose the model from the list. Click on the Forward button to install the appropriate driver for the printer:

Once the printer driver matching the printer has been selected, click the Forward button and enter the optional printer description and location information. You should be returned to the Printers dialog where your new printer should be listed.
Once the driver is installed you are ready to try out the printer. In the Printers dialog select your printer, right click with the mouse to pop up the menu and select Properties. Click on Print Test Page to send a test page to the printer.
